Every season the big coffee chains add flavour-appropriate items to their menus for their customers to order and enjoy — pumpkin spice or eggnog lattes. Hot Chocolate Vancouver does the same, except that we are a collective group of small, local, artisan businesses and every January we combine our creative energy to create fantastic hot chocolate drinks for sale at our own venues across Greater Vancouver. For just a small amount of pocket money the public can purchase a little bit of cheer to brighten the gloomiest time of year, while at the same time help our efforts to stay independent and financially secure.
In 2021 we need your support more than ever, and perhaps you need the little candle we light in the darkness too. However, in order to be mindful of your safety and respectful to BC Health Authority rules and regulations, we have made some modifications to this annual initiative. These include:
Our online photo contest will still take place as usual but we have cancelled all other classes, pre- or post- happenings, tastings, art showings or other promotional events associated with Hot Chocolate Vancouver for 2021.
At this time we are exploring partnerships with delivery companies in order to make this year’s 87 fabulous hotchos even safer for you to enjoy.
Please stay safe and respect others needs to do the same. But don’t forget to have some fun, and remember our motto. “Chocolate Makes You Happy!”
